to ns but nono tho less clear nnd em
First, tho soul and spirit continue to
llvo when tho body dies.
Second, tho condition In whlcli It live
Is ono perfectly suited to tho disembod
Third, that this condition, though suit
able to tho bodiless man, Is ono either
of happiness or unhapplness of health or
dlsenso of Joy or suffering, nccordlng
to tho relation which tho Individual has
held to God In his earthly existence.
THE NEEDS OF THE SPIRIT.
Of tho Immortality and condition suit
ed to tho needs of tho soul-splrlt, tho
Scriptures glvo us our dear Lord's own
teaching, lifo nnd resurrection, which
those may read who run. Of tho dif
ference of expcrlenco in this spirit world
tho pnrablo of Dives and Lazarus gives
nmplo testimony, although tho words of
tho Lord and his apostles respecting tho
contrasting conditions or thu wicked and
tho good, of tho righteous nnd unrlght
coub, of tho saint and sinner aro so
numerous as to bo Impossible of misun
derstanding. It Is this dlftereneo of condition that
leads tho beloved dlsclplo to cry out
under dlvino enlightenment, nnd ho said
unto mo vvrlto "Blessed tiro tho dead who
dlo In tho Lord." That Is, blessed nro
thoso who, when tho body decays, finds
tho soul nnd spirit nt one with tho laws
of tho spirit world. This Is all. But a
very Important all It Is. That which wo
distinguish ns the opposlto of goodness
nnd call, wickedness Is hut tho dcllbcratu
Independence-of tho body, soul and spirit
of tho laws, made for their development
In tho highest degree. In tho civil stnto
wo call It rebellion, or when tho table
of tho great laws is broken by ono or a
class wo call It crime.
Tho law of God and tho righteous law
of man nro ono and tho snmo in principle.
Their mutual uso Is to warn and restrain
thoso that are weak and tempted, and
to reform tho evil-doer nnd brlnir him
back to tho way of right living. Tho
spirit world, llko tho physical world, Is
a world of law ond order, for God Is
law. To bo In the Lord Is to bo one with
him In purpose, desire and as far as may
bo In action.
A UNIT WITH GOD.
You will recall our Lord's prayer that
his disciples all might be as ho remarked
that they may bo ono as we nro one,
ono ns I In them, and thou In me, that
they may bo mado perfect In one. To bo
one a unit with God is to exist, to live,
and move und have our being In God. To
do this here on tho earth Is to make n
struggle against the tendency of our fal
len nature. It Is a warfare as St. Paul
expresses It, between tho llesh and tho
spirit. A warfare, not a supremo accept
ance of what may seem tho Inevitable,
but a battlo with evident odds because
wo cannot seo tho invlsiblo armies of
God, which surround us, "tho Innumer
able company of angels," "tho cloud of
witnesses which encompass us." And let
us bear In mind this tendency to evil,
does not always show Itself In explo
sions of vico or Immorality or In nny
manifest defections from tho moral law,
but. In this ago particularly, It appears
In a passive acceptance of tho present
physical conditions and a rerusn! to con
sider tho far moro important conditions
of that continuance of lifo without tho
body of which wo have spoken.
It seems nlmost needless to say then
that, whether tho continued Jack of unity
with God which is stated to bo mo con
dition of sin Is brought about and pre
served by a vicious or Immoral life or by
an Indlfforenco or neglect arising from
nny reason whatever, it seems almost
needless to say, I repeat, that to over
como this condition of sin means an ln
cpssant, nnd therefor wenrlsomo and
trying effort-nn effort which must in
evitably result In fniluro unless tho
strength of God Is added to our strength.
This strength Is obtnlned, of course,
through our Lord Jesus Christ, who him
self perfected in manhood through suf
fering stands ready to perfect us also
In tho same path by the means Ho him
self found best approved or tho pur
pose. Now, my brethren, any condition In
which this constant struggle becomes
unnecessary, and whero wo may find our
selves working out tho will of Him who
created us without effort or friction, that
condition must bo ono of enjoyment. And
so tho npostlo writes: "Blessed aro tho
dead who dlo In tho Lord. Even so salth
tho spirit for they rest from their la
bors." It Is a state to bo desired most
earnestly, for with that rest thero must
be. ej-en to attain It, a unity with tho
sourco of all lifo from which health and
peace and right-living must Mow without
I havo presented theso thoughts for
your attention today because I desiro to
speak of ono whom nil who knew him
renllzo to havo entered into tho state of
tho blessed dead.
REMARKS ON BISHOP RULISON.
Tho news of tho sudden death of tho
lit. Rev. Nelson Somervllle Itullson,
Doctor of Divinity, nnd bishop of tho
Church !n thin lltnnnvii r.nvir. T .....
to say, to tho thousands of this great
part of Pennsylvania with tho same
shock as when 'In Egypt the first born
In each lrousn li.ml lw.nn tnV, rrv
was not tho weeping and anguish of a
mother's heart, wrung to extremity, but
thero was the snmo senso of deep nnd
irretrlveablo lost which inevitably comes
when tho family circle Is broken. As
bishop ho was tho truo father in God
of his people. Each parish had Its placo
In his heart, and ouch rector know that
In him ho possessed that raro and price
less boon, a truo friend. His lovo of
his work was seen In his leaving out
of tho llttlo that wns left hlm 200 to bo
gin nn endowment of Diocesan Mis
dons. Strong and decided In his opin
ions, endowment of diocesan missions
Inflexible whero principles were concerned
ho. wns broad nnd generous In his In
terpretations. Ho never contested a point
Ills Judgment was withhold until after
most thorough Investigation and when
expressed It was final.
An incident wns related to mo recently
by a fellow priest showing how ho ruled
nmong us. After a certain service In
which tho priest had Introduced that
which was not In nccordnnco with our
Book of Common Prayer, they returned
to tho rectory, and on going Into tho
study tho' bishop laid his hand lovingly
upon tho shoulder of tho other and said
llrmly, but most gently: , you havo
no authority for what you did this eve
ning. Of courso the priest desired to
argue, but very deftly tho bishop turned
to other things and did not allow tho
conversation to drift In that direction
again. Tho cltrgymun remarked to mo
that ho would havo fought for tho point
had tho bishop forbidden him or argued
with him, but as It was ho nover repent
ed tho act.
Ho was overcomo by Jove. Instances
of his loving method of governing could
bo multiplied. Tho results are seen in
tho reverenco and esteem In which ho
Is held by tho clergy. Whllo gentlo ho
was not weak, nnd whero need demanded
ho was llrm. decided nnd quick In his
commands and actions.
As presiding officer In conventions ev
eryone fo'.t that ho sought Impartially to
rule and decide, so that whllo everyone
know what ho himself thought no ono
could say that his decisions wero partial,
Sincerity and slnglemludedness were
prominent clharnctcrtetlcs, In speaking
to him of a misunderstanding which had
arisen from the Juxtaposition of two ten
tlments In his last convention address he
was deeply grloved und expressed himself
most docldedly and clearly upon tho sub.
Ject and requested that his opinion bo
made known in order to correct tho mis
conception. AS O. nreaehnr It la iPnronlv nnnneanm
for mo to speak to you who havo so
often llstenod to his words and been car
ried along by the rapid ilow of thought
and longings to his conclusions. Through
oil 'his words ran a current of sincerity
and dovout lovo for his fellow men. No

how closely ho held himself in touch with
mankind as man.
A STIHONa AND GOOD BISHOP.
Indeed In all tho elements which go to
mnko up a strong and good bishop ho
seemed to 'excel. One of tho youngest
men In tho house of bishops, I am told,
he nevertheless commanded attention to
views and conlldcnco In his conclusions
far beyond his years. (Many times, both
In public and private, ho has expressed
tho wish that ho might havo moro tlmo
for literary work and to 'study tho social
conditions of tho country, A courso or
lectures recently delivered and ns yet un
published, seemed to bo tho beginning of
tho fulfillment of this desire nnu tho wid
ening of 'his Influcnco in tho church. But
nlas. It was not to bo, for God took him.
Somo men nro born to lead and to rule
and no path seems too hard for them to
ascend, but few of theso escape the frail
ties and vices of humanity. It Is ono
thing to bo a bishop, It Is qulto another
to bo a humble, reverent, pure man. The
beautiful personal character of him
whom I speak today transcended tho
high nnd sacred olllco which ho held.
Yes, It Illumined nnd made It radiant.
I fear even to seem extravagant In my
words .hero for I know how sincerely ho
was opposed to nil hollow flattery, but I
can apipeal for support In what 1 say to
his brother bishops, fellow priests nnd the
many laymen whom ho met. Sincerely
do I appreciate the purity of the character
that has been my study for fourteen
years. Never, even once, In word or ex
pression was evidence of other than sin
gleness of purpose nnd purity of thought
and intention. A man among men, af
fable, Interesting, nttractlvc; without ar
rogance or pomposity or effort, he won
tho hearts of men not ns tho bishop only,
but ns tho man and bound them to him
not by descending to their level of medi
ocrity, deferring to their weaknesses or
tho customs of the day, but by the Im
pression of sincerity, gentleness and lovo
which ho mado upon them. As nn Illus
tration: One gentleman when It was sug
gested that ho should attend tho funeral
services ns a representative of the vestry,
remarked hat he did not represent any
thing but his personal lovo and esteem for
the bishop, for ho considered hlm a very
Wo can never measure tho height of a
mountain when wo stand near; It Is only
when at a dlstanco we look up that wo
realize its dignity and Immensities. So It
Is with one with whom wo live. A prophet
Is not without honor save In his own
country. Tho every day trifles, the eat
ing and drinking and llttlo mutual ser
vices which go so far to mako Ufb smooth
and enjoyablo In closo association take
away from the largeness and dignity and
Importance of men, making even tho
greatest appear ordinary. Recognizing
this fact, wo say history cannot be writ
ten for at least a generation, nor a Just
valuo bo put upon men's lives and actions
until they aro long dead. But today I
havo endeavored to lose sight of the
minor associations, dear though they aro,
and to bring before you tho bishop and
the mnn In size and proportion such as I
think tho future will depict him; ono in
whom was united unusual qualities and
virtues, both for his Intercourse with men
nnd also for tho high olllco which ho held.
I may not closo without at least somo
word3 In which to asknow'edgo my per
sonal Indebtedness to his lifo and char
acter. My personal relations with tho bishop
began early In tho year 1SS4 when serving
as lay reader In Trlnty parish (now tho
cathedral), Cleveland. I frequently met
Dr. RuMson, then rector of St. Paul's, at
tho gathering place and center for the
clergy of tho city and vicinity tho study
of tho Rev. Dr. Holies, at that tlmo Rec
tor Emeritus of Trinity parish and since
Included In tho Church Expectant.
As lay reader, although then awaiting
holy orders under my friend, and rector,
the Rev. Y. P. .Morgan, rector of Trinity
parish, it was not to bo expected that at
tention shou!il be shown mo by the
clergy, but Dr. Rullson was an exception.
His greeting was always hearty and as I
found later his cordial interest always
REVERED THROUGHOUT OHIO.
A marked flguro In Cleveland had ho
then become. Very deeply had respect
for his abllltes and lovo for his warm
hearted, generous sympathy sank Into tho
hearts of both clergy and people not alono
of Cleveland, but of the diocese of Ohio,
whllo expressions of opinion showed that
If a bishop of Ohio should at any tlmo
becomo a necessity tho olllce would bo
his to accept or decline. In June, pt this
year, came the election, nnd In October
the consecration to the assistant blshoprlo
of Central Pennsylvania. Again his
thoughtful consideration wns shown in
selecting tho lay reader to assist him
In personal preparation for the great ser
vice In which ho was to bo set apart to
the highest olllco In the gift of tho
church. To. this consideration I was in
debted for a scene which revealed us
nothing elso could tho healthful, sweet
ness of his disposition and character.
Tho solemn service was over, tho con
gregation had departed, tho newly mado
bishop hail been llvested of his robo In
tho parish house when escaping from tho
congratulations of many friends ho lctt
About that tlmo I entered tho church
by a side door nnd saw him coming down
tho center alslo from tho chancel and at
the same time in the front door camo four
youjig girls, the. youngest but scveii
years, daughters of tho bishop, who were
looking for tho father with a soft ex
pression of delight they ran forward to
him nnd gathering them into his arms ho
mingled his tears with theirs In tender
Joy, And though I then retired It surely
would bo no stretch of the imagination to
bellevo that ho led tho sweet children to
tho chancel steps and kneeling, prayed
for them and himself his first Episcopal
A year and more passed beforo I saw
him again and then ho most kindly took
tho long Journey to Meadvllle, Pn tn
preach tho sermon at his ordination to the
priesthood. Years passed but not of for
gctfulncss on his part, as various In
quiries and calls from parishes gave tes
timony. At last the way seemed opened
and I became a member of his diocese and
rejoiced to again renew the kindly rela
tion as priest which had been begun ns
lay reader. For nearly live years wo novo
been in most Intimate relations not only
as bishop and priest, but as personal and
In all theso years, and I bear testimony
with tho deepest senso of gratitude, I
havo ever received at his hands thought
ful consldratlon und a kindly and sym
pathetic hearing whlo his ministrations
and his associations with tho people havo
boen over of tho most acceptable and
tenctorest character ns you can bear wit
ness. PREPARED AND READY.
That ho knew the end was approaching
I cannot doubt. A few weeks before ho
sailed on being assured by the writer that
a long rest would mako him strong and
well ho simply remarked; "I think not."

ceived a letter In which ho stated that ho
